Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL - TAFF

S REPORTER IS­LAM­ABAD—The cap­i­tal ter­ri­tory po­lice on Tues­day reg­is­tered a case against Jamiat Ulema-i-Is­lam (Fazl) Se­na­tor Hafiz Ham­dul­lah, who al­legedly mis­be­haved with rights ac­tivist Marvi Sirmed dur­ing a TV talk show a few days back.

The case was reg­is­tered against Hafiz Ham­dul­lah un­der Sec­tion 394, 506 at Kohsar po­lice sta­tion over charges of threat­en­ing and mis­be­hav­ing with a woman.

Po­lice had de­layed the fil­ing of the case due to their fail­ure to ob­tain footage of the show they wanted to watch be­fore regis­ter­ing the re­port. But fi­nally, af­ter watch­ing the footage of the said show, the case was reg­is­tered.

Ac­cord­ing to the stan­dard op­er­at­ing pro­ce­dure (SOP), the Se­nate chair­man had been in­formed about the in­ci­dent, po­lice claims.

Sirmed al­leged that po­lice were not co­op­er­at­ing with her and said that she had de­cided to ap­proach a court to seek reg­is­tra­tion of her FIR. The JUI-F se­na­tor has re­port­edly used abu­sive lan­guage against Sirmed dur­ing a tele­vi­sion show last week, thus trig­ger­ing up­roar on so­cial me­dia.
